I really really like this mascara! It provides thick coverage with just a few strokes without getting clumpy at all. The brush is really big (it feels huge after using Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes) but has a lot of control. It adds length and is easily buildable to provide a great look for night time wear. With just one or two coats it doesn't look like too much for day time wear, but it definitely makes my lashes look thicker. I'm also prone to mascara smudges under my eyes throughout the day, but I don't experience it nearly as much (if at all) with this mascara. I'd definitely buy it again!
I so wanted to like this! It made my lashes look very pretty, however they were NOT dramatic at all and this flaked worse than any mascara I have ever owned, even on the first day. It is also scented which bothered my eyes for the first few minutes. I could get used to the huge brush if it worked well, but it is a complete waste of money. I prefer blackout to this, although I can't remember if blackout flaked.
Rimmel Extra Wow Lash gives the same look for much cheaper.
After reading all the reviews about this mascara, I had to give it a go. I bought it was off Strawberry net and I must say, I was very disappointed - You had to put on a few coats before building any sort of volume and it certainly didn't do much for my length. It didn't take long before a build up of dried up mascara formed around the top of the bottle, making it hard to close properly and eventually dried to the mascara out. I thought I had just bad luck it so a few years later, I bought it again from a New York store. Once again, same thing. I've learnt my lesson now - Never again!
Yesssss ! The best mascara I have ever had. No clumps, not too wet, and no spiderlegs ! Its pretty pricey, but I think its def. worth it !
Such a hard product to review. I purchased this from Strawberrynet when it was on a 65% discount, so it was very affordable. It was one of those products that I had wanted to try for a long time, but was prohibitively expensive for a mascara. When it went on special, I took the plunge. I purchased this in "black". The brush is large and the bristles are densely packed together. When you see this, you assume that you are going to get a heavy layer of mascara in the first instance. I did not find this to be the case. I had to apply at least 4 coats to get the desired effect, which for me is quite a noticeable looking mascara. I found the best way to apply this is to let each coat completely dry, which is a pain in the arse because that takes too long! My main favourites for mascara are Clarins and Covergirl. I am sorry to say that this mascara is no where near as good as them. It is pretty poor when you are paying so much money for a mascara that performs at a worse level than a mascara by Covergirl, but it's true. That is not to say that it doesn't perform, it is just an ordinary mascara and you can pay much less and get a better product! I will use up wthe tube, but will not repurchase.
Edited 11/01/13: Downgraded from 3 stars to 1 star. I wont be finishing the tube because the mascara smudges! Can you believe a mascara of this calibre and price smudges???? I cannot believe that my Lash Exact from CG is the superior product. I had to chuck my Dior in the bin and I am not happy! It doesn't just smudge a little bit either, it smudges badly! This is quite an inferior product and I am not sure how it is getting good reviews.
Naturally looking lashes. After some time it became difficult to close the tube. If you like large hairy brushes it'll work for you. I have long and thin lashes. My friend who has shorter, but thick ones likes this mascara a lot and uses all the time along with YSL.
Its not worth the hype, but really what is? Its expensive as you would expect a highend product to be but it was a nice product. it gave my medium thick lashed a natural fluffy look, which i prefer. i didnt have the spider lash issue with the mascara, and part of the reason is the large fluffy brush. an EXACT dupe for this is the grow luscious green mascara. similar wand and smell and forumla, so try that one out before investing.
Not bad mascara. Smelled weird. Did the job but nothing "Dior"-like about it.. My Maybelline Great Lash does just as well at a fraction of the price. Cute bottle and a high end name brand. If thatsomething important to you, go for it!
Tube dried out quickly, not worth for the price.
